2 in stock

Wongi Wongi tells a story, not of a people dispossessed, but a people loved and cared for by their employers. Wongi Wongi is a personal history and account of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal relationships supported by documentation from official files. Miss Drake-Brockman does not deny the sadness and tragedies of the past but helps place them in perspective. Wongi Wongi is an account of life in a simpler time, at times sad, at times funny and always compassionate. The author hops her book will contribute to bridging the divide between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians.
